wow, two days in a row that I can get to a computer! Since AOL isn´t working for me again, thought I would send a quick blog. I did see an email from my Grandmother that I cant open but can only imagine what it says. Im sorry to worry anyone concerned about my or anyone elses safety on the Camino. All is well and there are many people on the trail now, especially since we hit the 100k mark today. Some people start there and end in Santiago. I was just curious if there was something here either in the culture or spiritually that I had missed. So, with that said...I should be finished in the next few days, Galicia is so beautiful and overall life is grand!

now we´re in Saria...about 100 K to go!!! Its almost sad and everyday we seem to be walking slower on purpose. it hit us both yesterday (still traveling with Aoife from Ireland) that we only have about 4-5 days left. Galicia in BEAUTIFUL!!! I´ve been thinking about my sister and how much she would love this hike; maybe I´ll have to come back sometime with her so we can do it together. Lots of lush forest and the smell of earth, mint and honeysuckle...wild blackberries, sort of feels like summer in Minnesota at the lake but looks like Ireland (what I would expect as I have not been there YET but it has been confirmed by Aoife).
on a not so pleasant note...glad to be traveling with someone while walking now. Many of the women on the trail have been either touched, grabbed, or been shown things not desired by some of the spainish men here (myself included unfortunately twice already). The majority of people are very kind but there are some real freakos that seem to be stalking the camino...if you would just pray for safety for the women, and does anyone have any insight on what might be hangin over Spain or the trail that might explain whats going on?
Ok, back to walking...its been grand but Im geting excited about England still!
Oh, and in case I cant get to a cyber cafe in the next few days...HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHANNON on the 31st! Love you!!!
